Guitar Hero 5: "Courtney's Gambit"
Posted: Thursday September 10th, 2009 by

With controversy erupting around the inclusion of Kurt Cobain as an unlockable character in Guitar Hero 5 -in so much as Kurt can then be used to perform non-Nirvana songs- Courtney Love, presumably representing "the Trust, the Estate, the LLC, the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises" has threatened to "sue the s*** out of Activision". Ms. Love played a role in getting Kurt's likeness into the game but it would seem that she was not aware that he could be used to perform songs other than those directly associated with Nirvana.

Okay so this is another pot shot at Courtney, but I get the feeling she may actually be surprised that Kurt can be used to sing/perform non-Nirvana songs. Though before supporting her ire I'd like to see the contract. **shrugs** It's hard for me to completely accept her grumpiness when I also get this overwhelming sense that she's just out for more publicity. I know, I know. It's a very snarky position to take. But is anyone is keeping a running tally on the number times she's threatened to "sue the shit out of" someone?
